Lower Big Quilcene Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Scenery and sweet singletrack make the Lower Big Quilcene Trail #833 a great ride for anyone, but this 6.2-mile (each way) trail presents a special challenge for adventurous, single-track-tested beginners looking for more. It's not for true beginners, but if you have some experience in the saddle and on the trails, this is the place to jump up to the next level of mountain biking.
It's great trail for such a leap: the scenery is gorgeous riverside and picture-postcard 400-year-old stands of Douglas fir, as well as hemlock and scattered cedar. Much of the hard-pack singletrack is baby-bottom smooth but with a few challenges, like water crossings and loose rocks, to negotiate. The 1,420 feet of elevation gain comes gradually, punctuated with anaerobic bursts. Adventurous beginners can blossom on this trail. Scenery: Classic Northwest forest and riverside scenery."
